As one of the premiere cities in the West, Denver has a lot to be proud of. Denver features beautiful scenery, an amazing amount of sunshine, a booming economy, a thriving cultural scene and a strong business community. But, like most cities across the U.S., Denver is still stuck in the past when it comes to Internet service. Residents and businesses are forced to rely on slow cable speeds, or even slower DSL speeds – but not for long. Gigabit Fiber Internet has arrived in Denver, thanks to FORETHOUGHT.net. The fastest Internet available, fiber broadband blows everything else out of the water – and for a price that meets or beats the much slower competition. The difference A gigabit equals 1,000 megabits. In comparison, most cable Internet providers offer around 50 megabits, speeds that they market as the fastest in the industry. At 20 times the bandwidth, the difference between… read more →
In light of the recent flooding in our Colorado community, I have been thinking a lot about disaster recovery strategies and some top priorities every organization should consider. This all came about when I experienced a busy signal when calling an organization on a Boulder County telephone system. What alarmed me was that this organization has 24 hr hotlines. No business can afford to be affected by a busy signal especially one that has support lines for people who are in trouble. So I thought of four communication must-haves in terms of disaster recover: 1. hosted PBX, 2. Collocation/ IaaS, 3. Virtual Desktops, and 4. choose a fiber circuit. Hosted PBX versus On-premise solutions: Though there are benefits to both, hosted PBX has an online interface where any end-user can manage their voicemail, forwarding calls, and much more. Super Admin users can change call flow and company messages. If the… read more →

In light of recent press reports from the Washington Post and the Guardian newspapers regarding the NSA having “direct, backdoor” access to the servers of Google, Apple, Yahoo, Microsoft and many other internet companies, as well as the revelation that the NSA routinely gets data dumps of all phone call records for at a minimum Verizon (but also probably the other major companies as well), I felt it important to make a clear statement about FORETHOUGHT.net’s position. FORETHOUGHT.net has never received a direct request for any kind of “blanket” data dump, either of web traffic information, or of phone call records. Neither does the NSA or any other government agency have equipment or connectivity in or on our directly-controlled network for the purpose of snooping our customer’s activities. We believe any such ‘Fishing expedition” would be an unjustifiable violation of your Fourth Amendment rights to be free from unreasonable search… read more →
